Hi all, I wrote a new blog post on planetary foods:
I'm copying it verbatim here for your pleasure, although the formatting is better on my blog.
Presently, I am looking for ways to honor the planetary powers in a balanced fashion by honoring them on their respective days. This can be done through various means like prayer, suitable activities (e.g. physical activity for Mars or learning a language for Mercury) but also through foods. This is especially convenient because we all have to eat every day, so why not make use of it? Plus, eating that way increases the chances of having a balanced diet.
Now that we have established our goal we need to find out which common foods are associated with the planets. Here’s my list, which is by no means exhaustive, so let me know in the comments if you can think of more and I will add them to the list if I agree with your attribution.
fruits in general
Dark side: neglecting other planetary foods, monotone diets
cheeses in general
water, esp. clear spring water
Dark side: stale and moldy foods that are bereft of vital energy, or that are outright contrarian to good health
white wine with carbonated water (spritzer)
chicken legs and wings
Dark side: anything processed in general, eating too fastnull
sweets, esp. pralines
sweet sherry and sweet
sweet fruit liquors
anything with pleasant odors
Dark side: overly sweet (e.g. soft drinks)
pepper (esp. black pepper)
Dark side: too much red meat, medicated meat, not caring about the origins of one’s food
big roasts, esp. turkey,
Dark side: overindulgence, i.e. eating or drinking too much
potatoes and other vegetables with edible roots
Dark side: constipating foods; eating too little
